    Hmm, i've been having trouble with FireFox offering to download various .php files on the forum when I click links, such as showthread.php.

    Using FF 1.5.0.6 and FF 2beta.

    Do you have any extensions installed, perhaps there is a link between them and the problem.

    IE also attempted to download a file when I tried to access hexus a few hours ago, so this hiccup isnt just confined to Firefox.

    Just thought it might help someone who is working out why.

    Apparently certain web proxy caches can cause stuff like this. Some of ntl's caches were causing spurious downloads instead of page loads with ebay a few months back.

    I'm not having any problems, but I have a full install of PHP on this machine for running server stuff. Might affect it.

    Theres a couple of threads about this now. So something going wrong. What ISP's are you all on? BT here with no probs.

    I'm on Pipex and had the issue until I cleared my cache.

    Clearing my cache didn't fix it, but it seems to have fixed itself now anyway
